Jubilee Concertzender

When this newsletter arrives in your mail-box the jubilee celebrations will be over and the holidays will be approaching.

But while we were writing it, we were still busy with the preparations for the
jubilee weekend. A weekend full of surprises with live music, interviews, ‘Instant composing’ and more.

Don't worry if you missed the live broadcasts, you can still listen to the programmes via our radio on demand service by going to the schedules for Saturday 30 Novem-
ber or Sunday 1 December and clicking on the programme that you want to hear.

steun onsWe can look back on an active year and many new programmes. But our future is less certain. Our main sponsors will end their support in Augustus 2014. We will therefore need all
the help we can get from our listeners.
Your donations are welcome! You can also support us as a friend. You can find more information here about how you can become
a friend.

Inventions for Radio presents Sarah van Sonsbeeck

On Christmas Day at 23:00, Inventions for Radio presents works by the artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck. Sarah van SonsbeeckThis programme, made specially for the Concertzender, has been inspired by memories from her youth.

Sarah van Sonsbeeck explains the work: "As an artist, I have been interested in silence since 2006. In that year, I both graduated from the Rietveld Academy and had terrible neighbours.
In desperation I sent them a letter in which I asked them to pay rent for that part of my
house that they occupied with their noise. Of course they didn't respond but I did discover what art could be and what it meant to be an artist.”

CD of the month: ‘Movements’ by Willem Hellbreker

Willem HellbrekerLouis Thörig, presenter and coordinator of the presentation team at the Concertzender, chose this month's CD.

“I have chosen a jazz CD that I often play while driving in my car. ‘Movements’ is a live recording from 2006 by the quartet of the tenor saxopho-
nist Willem Hellbreker. The atmosphere on ‘Movements’ makes me think of a dark and smoky night-club in the ’50s.”

“Hellbreker has a big sound, similar to the old American tenor-sax players, which you can hear especially well in the ballads. Melancholic and melodic. I first met Willem by chance during a holiday in Portugal and have been a fan of him since then.”
